Trending on Twitter Monday, November 5th
For the past month or so, people who are politically-motivated on social media have been urging everyone to vote. The hashtags #VoteTuesday and #ElectionEve were trending all day Monday on Twitter. Other trending hashtags seen in the past month include "VoteBlue," "earlyvoting," "Vote," "voting," "election," "midterms," "electionday," and "GOPVotingBlue."
Actors and other Hollywood people on Twitter tend to be Democrats, like Alyssa Milano, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jim Carrey, and Stephen King. Most of their tweets have been about telling people to vote, and especially to make sure to vote for Democrats. Some (such as Jordan Peele, Madeleine Albright and George Takei) just say to get out and vote, regardless of your beliefs. Quite a few celebrities are involved tonight with #TelethonforAmerica on YouTube, which is a non-partisan discussion of voting.
The trending stories on Twitter are usually about sports, politics or entertainment. You'll see slightly different trending topics depending on whether you have it set for "Worldwide," or choose a particular country, or a large city, or choose "tailored trends" (based on your location or the people you follow).
